    I am interested in putting a plow on my 93 Ranger. I am mainly doing my own driveway. 99.9% sure of that. I really don't want to weigh the truck down with a heavy plow. Is there any plow out on the market that will perform well? I have seen the snowbear plow and also the non commercial types from fisher and western. I also am looking at this in the sense of $$. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    I am a rookie so take my advice as such.. I have little idea what I am talking about. However, I have been shopping for snowplows for several weeks. I don't know what your budget is, but if it were my money and I only had to do my own drive.. I would just get an old manual angle plow. They should be lighter and they are certainly cheaper. I saw this one on ebay:

    http://www.snoway.com/ They make decent plows that are light but have a down pressure system to help cut in better since it is a light plow. Check out the site and also do a search on the board here, that should give you enough info to make a good decision.

    i have heard that the Fisher Homesteader is a good plow for lite vehicles and and small SUV's. They use a downpressure system for better backdrag and from people i have talked to they are gppd plows. They are around $3,000. I planned on buyin one but i got a bigger truck. good luck

    I agree with SOS my company has two sno-ways one is a v-plow and the other is a 8 footer. the straight blade is the lightest plow we have and with the down pressure on it, and it has impressed me alot. if you want to know more email me at ggwash21@mchsi.com

    Ranger Plow

    I have a plow on a Bronco II that should bolt right up to your Ranger. 6 foot steel blade . It's on an 84 tho. Not sure if it fits that far up in years. Has cable control pump but hey the price maybe right!
